There are many, but dev.copy2eps seems the most obvious, and the best
results are usually obtained by opening a postscript() device and plottign
directly on to it.
Converting PDF to .eps is also easy by many routes: I tend to find
'Export to PS' in Acrobat produces the cleanest results. (How to get to
that depends on both the Acrobat version and platform.) Others use pdf2ps
(part of Ghostscript).
